Lekhu Lakhem: Inspiring and Mentoring Directors

Lekhu Lakhem, developed by the Jewish Community Center Association (JCCA), is a two-year Jewish education and mentoring program for overnight camp directors and assistant directors. The program prepares them to see themselves as Jewish educational leaders by exploring issues of educational philosophy, Jewish vision, and educational leadership in multi-day seminars, text-based discussion sessions, individual mentoring, and a two-week seminar in Israel. All subjects are examined within the context of their camps and the issues that directors face in the course of their work.
Lekhu Lakhem’s first two cohorts were comprised of JCC camp directors.  Following a collaboration between JCCA and Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC), the program began including representation from independent camps as well. Four cohorts totaling 57 camp directors and assistant directors have completed the program since 2004.
